The long wait is finally over as the MTA announced today that the transfer between the IND Broadway-Lafayette station and the uptown 6 at Bleecker St. will open on Tuesday, September 25. Kevin Ortiz, a Transit spokesperson, dropped the news via his Twitter account this afternoon. I’ll have more on this news later, but it goes without saying that it’s about time. This project has been delayed numerous times, and the opening date for the transfer had remained shrouded in mystery for some time. It should prove to be a very popular transfer point for East Side-bound riders coming into the city from Brooklyn.
